Linden Leaves Eye Rescue Serum is paraben and sls free, is not tested on animals and is a soothing, cooling, nourishing and hydrating eye serum with a wonderful rose scent that evokes memories of walking next to my grandmother’s rose garden after a rain shower. The liquid lotion is packaged in a simple white 15ml plastic squeeze tube with a screw on lid and a roller ball applicator.
Containing the antioxidant properties of organic white tea, the toning and nourishing properties of rose and the balancing and hydrating properties of grapeseed oil, this eye serum is suitable for all skin types (including sensitive skin) and promises to help minimise visible signs of ageing and will refresh stressed or tired eyes (try storing it in the fridge for an extra refreshing boost).
The simple packaging makes the eye serum really easy to apply. I simply roll the roller ball applicator lightly under my eyes (avoiding direct contact with my eyes) and then gently pat the product into my skin using my ring fingers.
The serum does feel soothing and refreshing but, to be honest, I haven’t really noticed a reduction in fine lines (or visible signs of ageing) around my eyes, so I can’t really comment on whether this product lives up to all its promises.
Linden Leaves products are expensive. At the time of writing this blog post, the 15ml tube of Linden Leaves Eye Rescue Serum retailed for $49.99. Compared to other eye creams and eye serums that I’ve used in the past, I really can’t see much difference between an expensive product like this and a more affordable eye cream (other than the roller ball packaging and organic ingredients that this one claims it contains).
Linden Leaves products are made in Christchurch, New Zealand and are sold worldwide. Available from Smith & Caughey’s, selected pharmacies, various NZ stockists and online.
